    Violence, bullying and harassment are the rule and not the exception in America's schools. According to GLSEN's 2003 National School Climate Survey,

    4 out of 5 LGBT students hear homophobic remarks often in their schools.

    39% of LGBT students report being verbally or physically assaulted, often with a weapon and transgender students reported physical harassment 30% more than students that identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual.

    Nearly 1 out of 3 LGBT students skipped school in the past month because they were simply too afraid to go.

    It's not all GLBT, it's every one who never fit in. Bullying happens to every one, and in every school. I have many straight friends who were harrassed or assaulted. Some thing has to be done about it, not just for gays but any child who goes to school
